The Forbes Family Farm

We love connecting people in our community with locally grown food. We sell our produce through a Community Supported Agriculture model where families purchase a membership share and receive a box of fresh produce every week throughout the growing season along with an option to add-on a pasture-raised meat share. We grow over 70 different crops ranging from root veggies and greens to classics like tomatoes and cucumbers. Each week from May through October members receive approximately 8-12 produce varieties. The early weeks of the CSA will feature a variety of greens (lettuce, kale, arugula, spinach), root crops (radishes, carrots, beets, turnips) and peas, Swiss Chard, bok choy, green onions, herbs and garlic scapes. These boxes will be a bit smaller as produce is just coming on here in our high-altitude setting. As we move into the summer, your share will begin to include crops such as green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, summer squash, garlic and strawberries. By the fall we will also be able to include winter squash, apples, plums, melons, onions, leeks, fennel and potatoes.

All of our animals are raised out in the sunshine, moving to fresh grass daily. They are never given antibiotics or growth hormones. Most of our animals are heritage breed stock and are allowed to exhibit all the natural traits of their species. We raise chicken, ducks, turkeys, pigs, cattle and yaks.

We also run a guesthouse and covered wagons through Airbnb that allows us to share a piece of farm life with those looking to disconnect from the hustle and bustle. As a remote property along the scenic Sheep Creek Geological Loop, this is the perfect place for star gazers, outdoor adventurers, garden enthusiasts, and anyone looking to spend time on a working farm.

We’re passionate about teaching people how to confidently cook farm to table meals at home, so provide a variety of online courses and resources teaching people how to stock their kitchen, acquire the best ingredients, build a seasonal menu concept, and enjoy the Farm to Table experience at home.

I have no words to express how wonderful Forage Creek is. The products they offer are high quality and most importantly they will assure you that what you are purchasing is organic and without hormones. The owner is very nice and what I love the most is that they allow you to do your shopping from home and online. It’s so convenient, specially in this difficult time that we are going through with the pandemic. Not only for the ease of ordering your products from home and pick them up, but because you are also supporting a local farmer and his business. Thank you so much!!!” – Thalia, Google Review

I believe their meats are the highest quality we can find around here. Their eggs are so fresh and delicious. I stopped buying eggs from anywhere else.” – Miko, Google Review

Best quality meat in Utah! Give it a try!” – Brian, Facebook Review

When you buy our Utah grass fed beef from BlueTree Cattle Company you can expect the following:

  1. Flavor- Rich, full-beef flavor representative of the Cub River area due to our unique climate, soils, and plants.
  2. Finish- Cattle are allowed to grow and mature naturally, allowing for full marbling and excellent taste.
  3. Health Benefits- Higher in CLA content, high in Omega-3 and low in Omega-6 fatty acids make grass fed beef more “Heart Healthy” (Similar to the health benefits of fish).
  4. Cleanliness- Utah pasture raised beef has a far better record for No e-coli or salmonella bacteria contamination. Processing is done locally under inspection.
  5. Truly a local product- Our cattle are not hauled to the midwest to be fattened on government subsidized corn, butchered in a (Brazilian owned) factory, and then trucked back through the chain of brokers and giant supermarkets. Our Utah grass fed beef is natural and of the highest quality.

Cattle here graze on open pastures and drink out of crystal clear springs. It is the perfect environment to grow the healthiest beef possible the way nature intended it.

Blue Tree has the best beef I’ve ever tasted! Bjorn and his family are some of the nicest people I know. Their pride in their farm, their products and the American dream makes it easy to support this wonderful farm!

We ordered 10lbs of ground longhorn, and it was amazing! I used to think buffalo was the ultimate meat, but now think this is. I just ordered 10 lb more, and talked my parents into doing the same. It is a great price for grass fed beef. I will be a life long customer if it is around!

We ordered a half of a beef from these guys and it was the best meat I have had in a long time. Their service was great! Even above and beyond what was expected! I will order again and again from these folks. Wonderful people. Thanks for helping me eat better. We’ll be back!

Cute little family owned and ran farm with excellent quality products. This is the 3rd type of raw/grass-fed milk we’ve tried, and it is by far the best!

You cannot say enough good things about Beltex Meats. My first time in the shop today. They let me taste the deliciousness in the charcuterie display and gave great recommendations on a roast and sausages. The actually properly cut and packaged my meat (I’m a little picky about this). Not only is the in-store experience amazing with a friendly and knowledgeable staff, the meat is mouth-watertingly craveable. More than worth the hour drive from Northern Utah for me! I will be back again soon!

This was the best experience at any butcher/meat shop in the state of Utah. I used their ground beef and smoked bacon to make hands down one the best burgers I’ve had in a long time. Thank you Beltex.

Big Daddy Hill’s BBQ Sauce

Big Daddy Hill’s produces seven distinct flavors. Our Sweet and Tangy flavor is inspired from the Piedmont style of BBQ Sauce found in North Carolina. Luke’s Red Devil turns up the heat and mirrors the flavors found throughout Texas and the Southwest. For a more mild spice our Honey Chipotle provides you with a rich, floral, smoky flavor. And for those wanting a more familiar sauce we also make Razz Chipotle BBQ Sauce.
If you like Honey and heat then try out our Honey Habanero, but the Ghost BBQ Sauce is most likely the hottest BBQ sauce you will find in Utah—and it is packed full of wonderful flavor. If you’re looking for a non-traditional BBQ sauce give our J’s Jammin’ Jamaican a shot. The island flavors will be sure to take you far away from Utah! We also produce five amazing spice rubs, chile infused oils, and pepper sauces. Try one today and change how you BBQ forever.
